Murray rushed 21 times for 65 yards and a touchdown, but failed to corral either of his two targets in Sunday's 28-26 win over the Browns. Murray was held in check early, rushing for minus-2 yards on six first-quarter carries. The 28-year-old running back still ended up having a solid outing thanks to volume, even though his 3.1 yards per carry marked a season low. Murray has been the workhorse the Titans were hoping for when they traded for him in the offseason.
Murray rushed for 121 yards on 27 carries, and caught five of six targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 30-17 win over the Dolphins. Murray did everything but score a touchdown in the first half, rushing for 78 yards on 13 carries. He failed to find the end zone despite Tennessee scoring a season-high 30 points, but still managed to top 100 rushing yards for the third time in the last four weeks. Last season's 3.6 yards per carry in Philadelphia are starting to look more and more like an aberration as Murray continues to impress with a 5.0 yards per carry average in his first year with the Titans.
Murray rushed 25 times for 95 yards and two touchdowns, and caught both of his targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Texans. Murray came into this one with just one rushing touchdown on the season, but added two more as the Titans scored a season-high 20 points against a Texans defense playing without J.J. Watt (back). He got a larger share of the backfield workload than usual, with Derrick Henry touching the ball just three times. The veteran running back's stock continues to trend upward, as he has topped 100 yards from scrimmage in three straight weeks.
Murray rushed 16 times for 114 yards and a touchdown, and added five catches for 41 more in Sunday's 17-10 loss to Oakland. Murray was by far the most productive member of a Titans offense that otherwise struggled to produce against a Raiders defense that came in allowing 34.5 points per game. Rookie Derrick Henry siphoned off 10 carries, but it was the veteran that converted from five yards out for Tennessee's first rushing touchdown of the season. With a major role as a receiver out of the backfield as well, Murray is asserting himself as a well-rounded weapon for the Titans after coming over in an offseason trade with Philadelphia.
Murray rushed 12 times for 89 yards, and caught all seven of his targets for 56 more in Sunday's 16-15 win over the Lions. The majority of Murray's rushing yardage came on a 67-yard run, as he managed just 2.0 yards per carry outside of that play and was brought down in his own end zone for a safety on one occasion. He was once again involved as a receiver, finishing second on the team in yards and leading in catches one week after scoring twice through the air. Rookie Derrick Henry got nine carries, but the offseason trade acquisition is still the clear leading man in Tennessee's backfield given his involvement in every aspect of the offense.
